e.u. unanimously agrees to a delay for britain's breck's it i'm called assman in berlin this is the day. i'm pleased to. do it reach their treatment of this. group who were purposely to negotiate to be adored by the exclusion soon to be delayed. the decision on to mines is the importance of the house of commons passing a brics it deal next week this clue's useful computes to prove. i hope we can all agree we are now actually the moment of decision. also coming up tonight they may have down's syndrome but in every other way they're just like you and me we'll take you to a cafe in tehran where the waiters are serving up inspiration.
look at me now i finally made it i'm famous to go through life with my head held high see. european union leaders have agreed to a plan that would have boyd britain crashing out of the block next friday without a deal they've granted you kate a short extension delaying its departure until may the twenty second if teresa mayes breaks a deal was approved by parliament or until april twelfth if the deal is voted down and the door still remains open for london super quest's another extension years want e.u. leaders had to say after talks concluded late thursday evening. they would be able to agree still extension through the second of may. and affecting. not approved by the house of commons next week.
they would be able go through agree stern extension until the. twentieth of april twelfth. but i. do while expecting the u.k. to indicate the way forward. the position of the twenty five member souse of the commission has been united and on your book we have worked tirelessly to negotiate to do all that we. we have done everything we could to help with the finishing line. well the decision today underlines the importance of the house of commons passing a break next week so that we can bring an end to the uncertainty and to leave in a smooth and orderly manner i hope we can all agree we are now at the moment of decision and i will make every effort to ensure that we are able to leave with a deal that moves our country forward. u.k.
prime minister there saying we're at the moment of decision that moment talk all night and i'm joined now by our brussels bureau chief max hoffman who is in brussels for us look max nothing is simple with price it right at this extension deal is no exception we have these two dates in fact in this deal april twelfth and may twenty second can you first just walk us through some of these complicated details here. nothing is ever simple but it all starts next week when presumably the house of commons will vote for a third time on the withdrawal agreement so that's the divorce deal that the e.u. and the u.k. negotiated for the last years and that the house of commons already has rejected twice to be fair but it seems to reason may the prime minister the u.k. is rather optimistic that if she really gets that third vote she might be able to push it through let's say just for the sake of it she does in that case there's an
automatic extension until the twenty second of may that would be a technical extension because even if the house of commons approves they would need some time to implement that decision into the into u.k. law so that that's probably the simplest of the options now the fortunately it's not the most likely one the most likely one is that the house of commons will reject this deal as they have done twice before and then the extension gets shortened until the twelfth of april that doesn't mean that there will really be a brags that because the president of the european council was asked exactly that question he said everything is still on the table until that day so even a very long extension could be possible if and that's the big if the u.k. participates in the european elections in may also no great deal drugs it would be possible at that moment so to sum it up karl they have kicked the can down the road
two weeks. ok so still some clarity but not maybe as much as people would expect or now let's talk about theresa may herself she came to brussels tonight in a tough position she was asking for an extension in fact a june thirtieth she didn't get that of course how satisfied she is with the outcome. looks like max we may have lost the connection there can you hear me now max. sorry can't hear it if you. can hear me max arrived looks like we'll try to get that connection back in the meantime we'll just have to move on now the uncertainty over bracks it means uncertainty of course for british people living in other european union countries in spite of verbal reassurances from both brussels and london it's still unclear what breaks it means for them one hundred thousand british citizens live here in germany and they're concerned about how their lives will change if and when that
happens. back and forth and back and forth. off the backs of negotiations negotiations that are seriously trying the relations between the european union and the british government especially since the second deal fell through in the british house of commons. order is what jenny hayhurst has been looking for since the bracks of referendum kicked in in twenty fifteen a year before the referendum the british student moved to berlin for her masters degree now she's unsure what she'll be facing once she finishes studying the majority of my time spent in germany has been not knowing what the future is going to hold for me here which adds to all the uncertainty that you have as a young person anyway so i would say people are highly highly frustrated with uncertainty looming jenny hayhurst has decided to take action as part of the
initiative british in germany she's fighting to help secure u.k. citizens rights abroad her worst fear and no deal brecht says she and many others will lose their residence status overnight the advise she hears most often just give up your passport i mean not only are there emotional reasons why i wouldn't like to give up my greatest british why would i want to give up my british passport there's also really practical reasons i want to go back in the future and visit my family of my parents and i want to stay in care for them for a long period of time i would have to fulfil very strict requirements income requirements criminal record requirements the list goes on and on for these reasons jenny hayhurst and many other british citizens want their fate off the backs of negotiation table but not bargaining chips with people and the most important thing is to recognise that this is about how we live our lives and we need to have to give in some way out of this uncertainty at the moment and we need our rights to be
secured. are let's head back now to our correspondent brussels max often now max theresa may she came into brussels in a tough position she was asking for an extension june thirtieth she didn't get that how satisfied do you think theresa may is with this outcome. or that question she felt about the fact that she again didn't get what she came for here in brussels and she basically brushed it off saying that this was part of the nature of something like that that there needed to be to be compromise which is obvious of course the european union is all about about compromise but the question really is how does this change anything for theresa may because. most likely outcome at this moment is that the deal the withdrawal of agreement will be rejected for a third time in the house of commons next week even if it even is put up for another vote because the speaker of the house of commons rejected it for
a third vote this week so there might be some kind of change for him to put it up next week so most likely outcome it gets rejected and then they have another two weeks basically to sort things out and why should any kind of majority emerge during that time or anything substantial really change except maybe for the u.k. having a new prime minister to resign may steps down but those who know or say that's unlikely to happen because she has been. maybe not many things but one thing she has been and that was that's tough she's tough. as she's definite been tough through these negotiations however. you were touching on this how much confidence do you think e.u. leaders have in may's ability to go home now and get those m.p.'s to accept the deal that she is already going to go shaded in fact this extension deal has two possibilities maybe that's even implying that they don't have a whole lot of confidence in her. well i think. could answer that their very short
way they have absolutely zero confidence here that teresa mayes able to deliver on with all agree with and why should they she's failed twice she's not speaking on behalf of anybody it seems anything she promises failed to materialize and it's not you know rocket sides it's not hard analysis that brings us to this conclusion even the parliamentarians back home say exactly the same things so that is why by the way the leaders took matters into their own hands building this two step system and did not follow the lead up to resubmit they'd said we need to avoid a no deal bragg's it next week we need to make sure that we have at least a small extension maybe just to get ready for some of the basic things that they need to get ready for in the case of a no deal bragg's it and maybe even giving the chance for whoever follows theresa
may if that ever happens in the near future is to say then to give him a chance maybe to to ask for a long extension to participate in european elections and maybe recall a second referendum or snap elections max event about forty seconds left i think what a lot of people do want to know is is there any chance any path for the u.k. still to remain in the e.u. . all options are on the table if they apply for a long extension participate in the european elections who knows what will happen. right max often after a long night there in brussels thank you very much. well the uncertainty over brock's it means uncertainty as well for british people living in other european union countries in spite of verbal reassurances from both brussels and london that still unclear what price it means for them one hundred thousand british citizens live here in germany and they're concerned about how their lives will change if and when that happens. karen meter has just returned from school run
with her children just like she does every school day she lives in north london but her routine is about to be totally overturned because of breaks it had to make personnel decisions in terms of whether to stay in my job and relocate or try and find a job in england karen is from is tonja and works for the european medicines agency just a few underground stops away and can reward by at the beginning of march the relocated to amsterdam because britain is leaving the e.u. i really like my job i enjoy working. and do what i do so i took the decision that i want to relocate with my employer because it had been working for them for quite some time already. so it's a move to amsterdam in the summer but life will be complicated cara needs to keep a foot in the u.k. after she broke up with her partner their father insists the children visit him and
london never really be the only attention to securing my stay in you like pretty or anything like that i was european living here but as a result of grated i had to start thinking about my future the prime minister has offered settled status to europeans are already living in britain but they have to apply for a tidbit of rock receive can make it difficult to book from the three million initiative lobby group fighting for e.u. citizens rights says huge and security people are in complete limbo people are depressed they have upset they're very angry no one can make plans people don't know whether their job will go whether they can bring their old parents into this country because if there's a cliff in a couple of weeks time or wherever then we just don't know what our legal status is has she lost hope that things could still turn out all right well so we're still fighting and lobbying and producing things like this to keep citizens out of the
rain will be stormy weather so these are wind proof rain proof and hopefully will keep three point six million people dry there's still no recipe for breakfast but karen has made her decision as a single mother she needs her income and security and all the paperwork for u.k. status citizenships of passports for the children must come later i'm really sad to leave a leave england because obviously we've built quite a nice life here in the very settled here but. but. that breaks it it just doesn't leave you many choices you're going to go to neverland or. you want to hear. you're going to learn another language. it has been decades since the end of civil conflict under the command in cambodia
the country is still littered with an estimated two million land mines clearing them is dangerous but it's a perfect job. they may look like vermin but these rodents are lifesavers. are searching for land mines in cambodia. millions are still buried across the country the legacy of decades of war. the rats have a powerful sense of smell and they have an ability to learn. here at rat boot camp where they are trained to detect explosives. rats can sense the slightest whiff of t.n.t. . and when they do they're given a treat. but it takes around one year before the rodents are ready.
to the target. so that. is faster and cheaper. easy to. carry. the rats go to work clearing this area of land mines ten of them at a time sniff out the explosives every half hour different rats take over so their concentration doesn't slip for humans one wrong step could mean death threats though are safe. dangerous but then you need to be more than five kilos to act. just down the road the rights of free this village of landmines but that's after four decades in which the mines killed more than sixty thousand people in the
country thousands more were disfigured farmer was one of them. our village lived in fear for many years wondering who might be next i have five sons and worried constantly that. now that the mines are gone we feel great relief . and the rats are fast this area would have taken people four days to clear with great danger but the rats did it in under an hour. today is world down's syndrome day millions have this genetic condition and increasingly they're being integrated into their communities visited the cafe in the iranian capital of tehran for look at how back and work. in the. completely in his element. to the guests in this. waiting tables the first ever
job and the forty year old is loving every second of it. you know i like the cafe it's big and it's nice. that's why i'm so grateful to the owner. that every night when i go to bed i thank. him for that. he and the others who work here have little chance of finding work elsewhere iran's job market is currently in such a bad state that over a third of college educated young iranians unemployed for people with special needs it's become nearly impossible to find work. for most of those people there's nothing to do once they finish school they just stay at home but we're convinced it's good for them to show people that they have other abilities not just good for them it's also good for their families they're often
sad because they can't do anything but here they can show just what they're capable of. more than forty people living with down syndrome autism work here regularity everybody pitches in doing what they can brewing coffee waiting tables or entertaining the guests with music. they all get paid for their work except for the cafe owner he she runs a deficit every month there are very few government programs to support social projects like this one in the islamic republic. we've never received support from any kind of organization it's a completely independent project founded and financed privately or totally self dependent. giving up is not an option because every day she sees just how much this work means to him ron and the others.
i used to just be with my father. but father look at me. i finally made it. i'm famous and go through life with my head raised high c. . with a positive attitude imran and his colleagues have created an atmosphere found nowhere else in the islamic republic. no other can feel he a new iran could get away with this level of frivolity imran and the others are making the best out being a little bit different and have transformed coffee down two thousand into a place that's bursting with positivity.
an increasing number of retired american football players who suffered concussions during their career are being diagnosed with brain conditions ball suits have been one result another are attempts to make football safer. impact and full speed american football players may appear to be well protected but a rating system for the helmets of youth players developed by researchers in the united states will make it clear how protected they really are from head injuries the way we develop the rating system was by collecting data directly from these football players so they had sensors in their helmets we knew how hard they hit their head how frequently and what locations on the whole it so we replicated that in the lab and it identified which helmets best reduce risk. researchers found some alarming statistics in adult players in one study of the brains of deceased american football players ninety nine percent for. a chronic brain disease found in
individuals who've been exposed to repeated head trauma and in living retired former american football players reports of increasing numbers suffering from memory and cognitive issues. there's always going to be concussions. but the larger part is reducing the sports. football and kids aren't hitting their heads as much they're going to have less concussions but you're never going to get rid of all when you still do hit your. head protection. the national football league says concussions were twenty nine percent in the twenty eight hundred season with a new rating system playing a role in the drop and it's hoped that figure will decline even further. and finally on the day a look at one of the best known artists of his time there is
a new pablo picasso exhibition here in germany and it's actually focused on one woman who is important to picasso here's more from the museum in potsdam. it was it her eyes. her nose her high cheekbones public because it was believed to have painted his beloved wife shot clean more than any other model some four hundred times and that's not even including the numerous portraits which are not named for her but whose features are clearly hers as i see him that she was of course his model and muse and lived out this role at his side in the last years of picasso's life jacqueline was really very close to her husband there are documents that also shows her clean was for a time a manager of picasso's work. as. shockley in was married to become so during the final creative phase of his life for
a long time many of her portraits were only known through black and white photos of picasso studios because the works were in the family's possession. jacqueline's daughter whose childhood portrait is also in the exhibition granted rare permission for them to be shown. for the curators in pots it's like having all their christmases come at once i don't believe in christmas but i do like hot chocolate so it's like having the best hot chocolate and it's lots of fun and it's fantastic and it's also fantastic to do the research behind it the exhibition starts with the first portraits of chuck clean from one nine hundred fifty four shortly after the seventy two year old picasso met the twenty six year old and runs through to his final acts at the end of his life after painting his many female portraits picasso began painting men again it was a very prolific face in his life. his snob or one goal was always to create.
as time was passing by and he was celebrating his seventy's and eighty's and even no i.d.'s and he knew that. the clock was ticking. picasso the late work ends with a painting that was still in progress at the time of the artist's death it seems to depict two figures and visitors are left to imagine how picasso might have completed it. that was the day but the conversation continues online you'll find is of course on twitter either at news or you can follow me at car last month don't forget to use the hash tag the day thanks for watching and for making us a part of your day. more
